This is the home page of RMS Education...
It's a site designed to reflect and display my freelance writing interests, educational and otherwise, ranging from study guides for schools, to short fiction and comic strip narrative - and some of my photo-snapping activities.
The site is meant to be changeable and fluid, and may alter from time to time. Updates, for example, are found under Site News in the menu, but many may be placed here, on the home page.

AND...! A short, 12-page adventure story I scripted back in early 2018 is also now available. It appears as a back-up tale, included in the final edition of a four-part series titled, The Wrath of the Cursed, written and illustrated by Matt Kyme. The title of my story is Remembrance Day, 1938, illustrated by Matt himself. I am excited about seeing this little story out in print at last! Matt wrote and drew a new Phantom story for FREW during 2018-2019 which was recently published, and just about sold out in newsagencies throughout Australia on the day of release - see FREW's The Phantom, edition #1850.
